Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew of any archery retailers in the general area of Cleveland, Ohio that have knowledge of traditional equipment. Years ago I bought my cousin a recurve for Christmas, and he hasn't really delved into it yet. I recently gave him some info on what he needs to start shooting more often, and he hasn't been able to find anywhere locally to buy simple things like a glove or tab, let alone somewhere to shoot. The few times he's gone to a shop to buy things, it's been compound-centric and he realizes now that the aluminum arrows he bought are too light, and that's what led to the hand shock that put him off of it until recently.

I ran into the same conundrum while living there, and it's why my understanding of bowhunting and archery in general has increased exponentially since moving to Oregon.

Any help is appreciated,

Damion

Damion,

I made a post on our facebook page and tagged you in it. There is already one lead near your cousin.

P.J.
